Words to live by...

"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and to rest afterward."

[Spanish Proverb]

Ius luxuriae publice datum est

(The right to looseness has been officially given)

"Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders," wrote Ludwig von Mises, "no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interest, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle."

Apparently, the crossword puzzle that disappeared from the blog, came back.

On The Road to Biloxi

Ah, the first day on the road. We left home at noon and drove and drove and drove and drove until we almost reached Pensacola. I think we are just east of Pensacola. It's hard to tell because it is dark.

We traveled back in time. The clock in the car says it is an hour later than it is here. So, instead of driving for almost 9 hours, apparently only 8 have passed. It still feels like 9 hours, though.

Tomorrow we get up when we wake, go find breakfast, then head for Mobile and the battleship Alabama. Yes, I talked her into it. She has never been on a battleship.

This time, I will take more pictures... maybe better ones. I took none today. There wasn't much of interest. Same old roads, same old toll booths, same old trucks and cars and motorcycles dodging each other and heading for who knows where. We came upon an accident, though, so the dodging wasn't successful.

It appeared to involve a full size sedan, a compact car, and a semi. I did not see any damage to the semi so he may have just stopped to provide assistance. The compact car was rear ended, clearly. But high up, the back bumper appeared to be undamaged. The tail lights were crushed. The full size sedan was damaged in the back and th efront was crushed and embedded in the guardrail on the right side of the road, some 20 feet or so off the Interstate.

I have no idea what happened but it looked really bad for that sedan.


Drive careful, ok?

nice blog.

hi,
Similar interests, mutual respect and strong attachment with each other are what friends share between each other. These are just the general traits of a friendship.
To experience what is friendship, one must have true friends, who are indeed rare treasure.

I have added you to my blogroll, hope you can do the same thing for me so that we can have constant communication.
